Our Neighbors

The dynamic collection of neighborhoods surrounding Masjid An-Nur is Al Maa’uun’s primary service area, often referred to as Near North; it is home to the historic African American community in Minneapolis and much of Minnesota.

This deep respect for the nuance of neighbors’ needs and aspirations lies at the heart of Al Maa’uun’s collaborative programming. 

Al Maa’uun focuses on five primary approaches to meet the needs of our neighbors:

  1.  Nourishing our neighbors with Healthy Food
  2. Empowering our neighbors through living wage jobs
  3.  Welcoming our neighbors through “Second Chance” Housing 
  4. Supporting our Youth through Mentoring

    RAIN of North America (RAIN) has offered healthy holistic solutions since 2008 in faith grounded housing that includes a home ownership pathway for adult men & women in recovery or exiting the justice system. Based in the Twin Cities, RAIN continues to serve citizens throughout Minnesota and the Upper Midwest who have demonstrated a commitment to personal growth as part of their rehabilitation. In a peer model, career training is utilized with life-coaches as a significant element of our reentry strategy, and we have seen successful reintegration into the community when safe and sober homes are combined with employment therapy containing a navigator continuum that embraces faith-based life coaching.

    The RAIN network has witnessed aftercare success when residents learn new life skills and participate in local collaborations of employers, churches, landlords – with volunteers and community agencies that assist citizens readjusting to their local neighborhoods, maturing spiritual awareness, assuming personal responsibility for their past actions, and become industrious members of the community. Using this aftercare approach, RAIN has experienced reduced incidents of relapse and recidivism.

    RAIN participates in collaborative efforts and attributes many of our accomplishments to these local networks – so we support them whenever possible.  Part of our mission as a faith-based housing nonprofit is to help create networks of welcoming churches, sustainable wage employers, and friendly landlords in six US states and soon, Oaxaca, Mexico. Our vision is to see citizens set free through the application of Biblical principles as they return and become an active, valued community partner.

RS EDEN’s work is to help our clients reach a place where they can begin to heal from traumas, including racism, systemic injustice, homelessness, incarceration, mental illness, and addiction. Our work must include an emphasis on advocacy, to transform the systems that caused or allowed for the trauma in the first place.
